When you hear the word occlusion, what do you think about? Teeth coming together, TMD (temporomandibular disorders), a philosophy(s), or are you just plain confused? Unfortunately, many of our colleagues are unclear as to what occlusion means to them or more importantly, what it means for their patients. What might appear at first to be a complex topic, especially with the abundance of apparently conflicting theories and treatments, once simplified to the essential elements, is in reality, fairly straight forward. The essential elements I like to call “the basic rules” and this program is dedicated to the outlining of these elements.

Practical Contemporary Occlusal Concepts outlines an evidenced-based practical approach to the understanding and implementation of occlusal therapy in everyday practice. Whether a dental generalist, dental specialist (prosthodontist, orthodontist, periodontist, endodontist, oral surgeon, orofacial pain practitioner), or dental technician, Practical Contemporary Occlusal Concepts sooner or later will apply clinically to as dental teams facilitate stomatognathic stability. An understanding of “the basic rules” will enhance all aspects of dental practice for the benefit of all the stakeholders. By the end of the program, basic occlusal therapy will be clarified as a routine part of the participant’s treatment genre, providing patients with an incredible service that is cost effective, efficacious, and exciting to do.
